A Girl-Boss is simply a woman who goes all out in achieving her dreams, taking your life into your own hands, and going all the way to reaching a great milestone.
Being a Girl-Boss can be rewarding especially once you start achieving your goals. Seeing positive results always makes the challenges worthwhile.
Here are easy steps to starting an incredible journey into being a girl boss;
The first step of being a Girl Boss is to love yourself, loving yourself is different from being conceited. Loving yourself MEANS APPRECIATING YOUR FLAWS AS WELL AS YOUR GOOD POINTS AND ACCEPTING YOURSELF FOR WHO YOU ARE NOW. Love every part of you (example; if your nose is crooked love it like that, it’s yours) do not be so keen to try to change who you are, you can only adopt good habits and change the bad ones but never change YOU.
Taking good care of yourself is also part of self-loving, take good care of your skin, and every part of your body. It will make you appear lovely and give you a certain kind of confidence.

DRESS FOR SUCCESS
You don’t need to spend top dollar to look good, just have it in mind that “to get the part you must look the part”. Dress smart and clean, racy clothes should be thrown into the trash, dress modestly and fashionably. YOU MUST DRESS LIKE A BOSS. Nobody respect a woman with and oversized view of her cleavage.
FIND YOUR CENTER
You need to know what you want to do, find your passion; interest anything that you know you can do and work to be best at, it might be starting your own business or climbing the corporate ladder to the top. YOU NEED TO THINK BIG AND DREAM BIG
SET YOUR GOALS
Nothing can be achieved without planning; you must prepare a feasible plan on how to succeed on whatever you have chosen to pursue.
NEVER DOUBT YOURSELF
‘When in doubt still try, don’t let your dreams fly away from lack of not trying’. BEAR IN MIND that People are going to doubt you, call you crazy, give you meager alternatives, and overall discourage you. You need to stay STRONG and BELIEVE in yourself. Trust your instincts always.
WHEN YOU FALL, YOU RISE BACK
Because you’re going through this part, it doesn’t mean you won’t experience failure, frustration, there might be a few tears, accept it all as part of the hustle. Your dream is big and you won’t get there in a day so stay put and brace all your failures, reeducate yourself in those fails and stand up once again.
PRINCE PRINCESS CHARMING
Being a Girl Boss is taking your matters into your own hands. It doesn’t mean that you would refuse help when given. It simply means relying less on people, you are your own prince charming, don’t wait for someone to come and bail out each time things are tough. Just call yourself PRINCESS CHARMING
STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE
It doesn’t matter if you’re a business owner or workings for an organisation, always strive for excellence, give people your best and success will chase you. Do not try to short change or cut corners it always gives poor service and affect your future output.
HAVE A SOLID SAVINGS SYSTEM
Just because we are dressing up for success and looking our best, we do not need to drain our income, spend wisely. Always have a savings plan, I personally cannot have money saved up in my account without using it up, if you are like me, you should try reliable savings platforms, joining cooperatives, investing in various legitimate ways.
